Blogging Marathon# 32: Letter L
Theme: A-Z Dishes from Andhra Pradesh
Dish: Lauju/ Laskora (Kobbari Lauju/ Coconut Burfi)
Letter L was a little tough for me. I couldn’t think of any fruits or veggies that start with the letter L. But the word Laddoo got stuck in my head. I was trying to find a laddoo that was made in A.P, but the one I knew that is from Andhra, Thokkudu Laddoo, I have already blogged about it.
Finally I remembered Lauju/ Laskora that my mom used to make. This is basically coconut burfi, just with a different name. Whenever I buy coconuts, they end up being too tough, but this time for a change I got a coconut that was just right. So I decided to make this traditional sweet with it.
Grating the coconut would have given the burfi a better look, but with my little toddler right at my leg, I couldn’t grate it and took the easy way out. I put the coconut in the food processor and just ground it.
Addition of saffron is optional, but I thought coconut and saffron combination to be very pleasing and tasty.
